Special Offer For Ferry Tickets

The ferry line 'Naviera ARMAS' have extended their special offer for the connection from Tenerife (Los Cristianos) to La Gomera (San Sebastian). Until the 28th of February residents can travel for only 7 Euros each way and for a car they will only charge an additional 7 Euros. Non-residents and tourists will pay double that amount, but this is still a remarkably good price and thankfully here are NO hidden surcharges. 
...AND from now until the last day of January they have reduced the price even further to just 5 Euros each way per passenger and per car !
The same offers apply to all ARMAS inter-island services in the Canary Islands, only the few days from the 8th to the 13th of February are not included in this offer.
Tickets can be booked online here:
UPDATE summer '13:
While this very special offer has ended, there are still very attractive prices for ferry tickets available all summer. Some highly frequented sailings on some dates (e.g. festival weekends) are obviously more pricey, but it is worth checking both Naviera Armas and Fred Olsen and you might pick up a bargain fare on their websites.

Great news. However tried to book on line but it insists on knowing the hire car reg number that we don't have. Coming over 26th Jan and returning 9th Feb. Whats so special about 8th/13th Feb?
Was told bookings not necessary as there is always space, is this correct?

Yes you can nearly always book at the ticket office just before the ferry sails. To be on the safe side, I'd recommend to be there at least one hour before the boat leaves. Early Feb. is 'carnaval' time in the Canaries.

Willie, Thanks for your answers. We are staying in Los Cristianos for a couple days before coming over so will go to the ferry port and book before, face to face. We are aware of Carnaval but had not seen anything in particular going on in SSB or anywhere else on the island, but would love it if there was.
